Ryanair fleet cuts put 300 jobs at risk
Ryanair has announced it is cutting its Dublin-based fleet from 30 to 24 planes for the winter 2018 season, putting 300 jobs at risk. The six planes will transfer to the carrier's Polish charter airline, which it said was growing rapidly. Ryanair blamed a downturn in forward bookings and airfares in the Republic of Ireland, partly as a result of recent rolling strikes by Irish pilots. Earlier this week, Ryanair said its profits in the April-to-June quarter had been hit by higher wage costs as the airline faces strikes by staff over pay and conditions. It said higher oil prices and a fall in fares also dented profits, which fell 20% to €319m. Ryanair is facing more strikes.
